Allsorts challenge week 23

Here is my card for this weeks Allsorts challenge. The theme is Monochrome Christmas following a sketch. I made two cards, as I forgot the sketch bit in my first attempt! The main stamp is by Inkadinkado from their Tin Can Mail range. I stamped it in Adirondack Espresso. I used a damp paint brush to drag some colour onto the holly. The small holly stamp is from Graphicus and the sentiment is from Hero arts I think. The paper is a download from Summer Driggs and the corner is made using my Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch. I was really not sure what to use for the embellies, and ended up punching some little trees from some paper stamped with music (Stamporuim). Thanks for looking!

I really love this card Sally and I think you've done a great take on the challenge brief.

The colour you've chosen for the monochrome tints and tones is just up my street. Lovely image too.

Hi Sally. This great. I love how you've dragged the colour onto the image and that music bp is lovely.
Your little xmas tree embellies are very clever, they work perfectly.
